Air Force Systems Command; and Armed Services Explosives Safety Board. The work was accomplished during the period from 1961 to 1968 under the general supervision of Mr. T. B. Kennedy, former Chief, and Mr. Bryant Mather, present Chief, of the WES Concrete Division, and Mr. J. M. Polatty, Chief of the Engineering Mechanics Branch. Mr. George C. Hoff was the Project Officer for the majority of. the work discussed and prepared this paper. Directors of the WES during the conduct of these investigations and the preparation of this paper were COL Alex G. Sutton, Jr., CE, COL John R. Oswalt, Jr., CE, and COL Levi A. Brown, CE.
